Sony OLED Walkman Competes Against iPod Touch


Touchscreens seem to be all the rage these days, so Sony is capitalizing on that interest with the pending release of the Sony X1000 Walkman. The kicker? It’s got an OLED touchscreen and not just some regular Joe Schmoe touchscreen. That OLED-ness will make it great for videos, I’m sure.

Poking around the Sony Style Hong Kong site, you’ll find the full list of features and specifications as described by Sony itself. The X1000 Walkman gets a 3-inch OLED touchscreen display with a 432×240 pixel resolution, 32GB of internal storage, integrated noise cancellation, and an FM tuner.

In addition to supporting a range of audio (MP3, AAC, WMA, WAV) and video (AVC, H.264, MPEG4, WMV) formats, the Sony OLED Walkman keeps you entertained in other ways too. It’s got the NetFront web browser, YouTube support, and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi for latching onto the Internet. Toss in some random games and other apps and you’ve got yourself a serious iPod touch competitor. There is no App Store (yet).

Also known as the Sony NWZ-X1060 portable media player, this OLED Walkman can be found here. No word on pricing.
